Running head: NETWORK IMPLEMENTATION 2 Networking Plus Memo To: Robert Smith – Chief Information Officer at HHR From: Networking Plus – Network Implementation Team CC: Date: 16:02:55 Re: Network Implementation Dear Mr. Smith I want to first take a moment and thank you for allowing my team to help design Health Hospital Foundation’s (HHF) new network at your modern facility. It has been my team’s pleasure to design a network that will not only function for the current employees, but also allow for growth for a great company like yours. After long thought and hard work the Network Implementations has come up with a design for your new network that we think will work for your company for years to come. The following is an overview of the design we think will work best for your company. This memo includes the following areas for you to review: servers/routers/hubs, personal computer/software choice, network model/topology, IP address scheme, cabling, illustration of network design/boardroom design, and price. Please review this document and see that all of your requirements were met within this design. Servers, Routers, Hubs We recommend that you install the Dell PowerEdge T710 Tower Server in the MIS Department for the main server. According to The Linux Information Project (2005, para. 1), “A server is a software program, or computer on which that program runs, that provides a specific kind of service to client software running on the same computer or other computers 2

This server offers up to 16 hard drives and up to 144GB of memory (PowerEdge T710 Tower Server, 2010). This would ensure that every department would be able to have its own hard drive on the server. We also recommend installing NETGEAR ProSafe 8-Port Gigabit Smart Switches to be shared between two departments except for the Administration and the MIS Department, which would each have their own Smart Switch. This means Human Resources and Accounting would share one, as well as the Media Relations and Hospital/Clinic Relations Departments. We would need a total of four altogether. Using these Gigabit switches will increase bandwidth (NETGEAR Inc., 2007). For each department we recommend a separate NETGEAR JFS524 24-port Fast Ethernet Switch (10/100 Mbps) and a NETGEAR Wireless-N Router for the Boardroom which will provide the signal that is necessary on our network .
